Monitor database activity for application users with Guardium and WebSphere Application Server

Certain audit requirements mandate that specific database activity can be traced
back to the user who is responsible for the specific activity. This is especially challenging in
application scenarios where the pooled database connections are used and the application itself is responsible for authentication and authorization.
This article presents a generic approach for WebSphere Application Server applications that enables
database activity monitoring solutions like InfoSphere Guardium to reliably assign the application user to
the database activity without requiring changes to the respective applications.
